Are they sure they aren't going to use the Beats brand name right away? What would be the purpose of acquiring them if you're not going to capitalize on the brand recognition (plus the likes of Iovine, Dre and Reznor, who I understand will play a big part in their new service)?   I think it would make more sense to bring over the users from iTunes Radio into Beats and consolidate all their music offerings under Beats.
Looking forward to this. People can make fun of Microsoft all they want, but with Nadella running things I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss them.
Has anyone bothered to look at the schedule for WWDC (in the App)? Apple up to their usual tricks again with numerous sessions having the "To be announced" tutke and others getting the humorous ones like "Mind = blown", "Patience is a virtue", "This one is worth waiting for", "You'll be talking about this one" and many others. Apple must have a lot of new stuff to talk about given the large number of sessions that haven't been named. And to Relic, you can brag about...
It's not how Apple sees people - it's how the customers see them. Someone looking for "channels" (or however Apple sets things up) to listen to and seeing Drake is going to expect music along the lines of his own material. If they hear something completely different I think their reaction might be "I tuned in to hear some Hip Hop and got rock instead" and then proceed to switch channels.Drake might love classic rock and have a great collection of material to recommend, but...
My complaint would be that the people they've hired so far fit into a pretty narrow field of musical tastes. I hope Apple adds a LOT more talent to cover other musical genres.Someone like Alice Cooper for classic rock, for example. And I doubt anyone hired so far would be playing any country music (not a fan myself, but hugely popular).
 This reminds me of when you used to always claim that Google Play Services keeps Android users up-to-date with security patches, when in fact it didn't (it couldn't update low-level components in the OS, such as the kernel). It does NOW, since Lollipop was introduced, but you made those comments long before Google Play Services had this ability (or anyone knew it was coming). I see you're still keeping the status quo. Make a generalized statement that isn't true (in this...
 Wow, how many times has this been discussed here and you still don't get it? Apple's version of a secure element is vastly different from everyone else. Apple uses a custom designed section of their A7/A8 processor as their secure element (Secure Enclave). Google uses a mix of SIM cards OR on-device secure element. The specifications for the SIM card secure element are well known (and documented) making the possibility of someone hacking it greater than Apple's Secure...
 No, the original was correct. There have been several Google I/O vs WWDC articles on various sites lately and a LOT of people (specifically on the Android side) who seem to think these two events are similar in scope. Some even think I/O is superior. They are not even close.   Really? I spotted one huge difference right off (and I'm not even a lawyer).    Seems pretty clear to me. Since I'm the one uploading the content, and my purpose is to store my photos and share them...
 Exactly. Just looking over their schedules and seeing the sheer number of sessions/hours that are available at WWDC should make this abundantly clear to anyone with even the slightest bit of common sense. WWDC dwarfs I/O from a developers perspective. The fact Apple sends 1,000 engineers is quite amazing. Those engineers for the one week they attend WWDC represent 19 man-years (this doesn't even include the time they spend preparing for WWDC). That's a significant chunk...
What I'd like to see that would really make everyone in the audience drop their jaws and gasp?   - Safari performance improvements and some method of page caching so memory is no longer an issue. Keep multiple tabs open and never wait for a page refresh. - Safari extensions. Would be difficult to do properly (memory constraints and security), but WOW what a huge deal this would be. - Proactive (as mentioned). - iOS 9 performance enhancements for older devices (as...
